COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tawny red and full of malt and hops, Full Moon’s unique flavor quells your palate’s longing for something truly distinctive. Marrying the smooth sweetness of malted rye and barley, the ale’s rich body is complemented by ample helpings of American hops. The culmination of our efforts is an assertive American pale ale, a hop lovers dream.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Malty, toasty, lightly grainy, citric and spicy aroma, notes of minty rye and lemongrass, some faintly musty yeast. Light amber color, cloudy and sedimented with an initially voluminous head, lasting and frothy and with bountiful lacing. Flavor profile is interestingly balanced between the spicy rye, tangy citrus and juicy hop, with a solid malt background. All flavors presented roughly equally, which is fairly unusual but welcome. Also well-balanced is the bitterness and faint sweetness. Mouthfeel is creamy and effervescent. Medium bodied. Overall, very drinkable and refreshing, a nice and unique Pale interpretation.

flemdawg (558) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2004
A citrus(lemon) aroma with hops and whole grain cereal as well. Hazy orange color with a massive inital head of large white bubbles. A slight lemon taste, but that is soon overtaken by the huge amounts of bitterness. Rather thick on the palate with a long lasting bitter finish. A good beer and my thanks go out to Louis for sending this to me.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Appearance: a cloudy, reddish color, beneath a large, fluming, creamy, off-white head. Aroma: soft and subtle, grainy, cerealy, faint whiffs of fruit, citrus, spice. Invigorating flavor! A unique, unusual approach upon the palate...sweet, fruity, smotth and rounded, with a full, lush mouthfeel. Medium bodied, bright and tasty, with a lasting citric/ orange flavor.

richbeir (15) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2004
Hazy deep amber color, with a full head, full hoppy aroma. Briskly bitter, with a touch of malty, flavor. This beer starts and finishes with a strong bittering hop flavor. A good balanced beer to keep your hop senses in check. Not for the weak of heart.

IndianaRed (3430) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2004
Bottle Pours a hazy medium amber with a huge white fluffy head. Hops and malt are right up front as far as aroma goes. Taste is nutty and hopy. A little sweet. Palate is fairly smooth and the finish has that hops bitter bite. Just OK. Thanks to 123456green for the trade ! : )

jsquire (4038) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Murky brown/orange out of the bottle with an unmanagably huge foamy head. Nice grainy malt nose with a hint of hops. Nice soft palate with a medium boby. Very easy to drink. Caramel sweet malt flavors with noticable rye in the grain bill. Nice citrus hop finish. Very nice session beer. Thanks, Louis.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2004
12 oz. bottle. It is slightly lighter in color than the version of the past. It is a gold-copper color and has a great head. The aroma now has more hops. The flavor has just a bit more bitterness now, more flavor hops, and maybe just a bit less body. It is smoother on the palate now but has been a great beer regardless. This is one of my favorite session beers and now it might just be even better. Great job Tim!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2004 sweet malty nose misleading...not the best example of an american IPA, but very peppery spicy...fantastically warming the more you have...go figure...I hate to say this is the only beer that really makes this brewery unique...If you find it buy a sixer or a pint...

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle pours caramel, large frothy off-white head, copious amounts of carbonation and light lacing.   Aroma is somewhat spicy & citrusy, noticable rye and hops.   Up front its quite spicy, with a nice unsweetened citrus bite.   Finishes crisp and clean, with rye and a slight hop bitterness.   This was rather good.   Wonderful body and good mouthfeel, I can dig it!   Thanks goes out to 123456green for the trade!
